This research briefing outlines the potential cost implications of failing to protect children and young people from child sexual exploitation.

Research carried out by Pro Bono Economics on behalf of Barnardo's highlights the pivotal role of specialist interventions, not just in helping victims recover from child sexual exploitation, but also in minimising the costs associated with it. Based on an estimate of how young peoples level of risk changes in the absence of an intervention, the research findings show a potential saving of £12 for every £1 spent by Barnardo's.
